Some die-hard Eminem devotees may already know that The Eminem Show turned 15 years old this month.

But for the rest of you Slim Shadys – who know almost all the lyrics to Lose Yourself and are only kind of aware of the underground shit he did with Skam because of Stan – here’s some new information.

Marshall Mathers will be celebrating the anniversary of The Eminem Show, one of the highest grossing rap records of all time, with some limited edition goodness.

When Eminem teased the new drop on Instagram a few days ago, many of us thought it could’ve signalled new music.

We hoped the 44-year-old Detroit rapper would bring out The Eminem Show Part 2, and continue his reign of sequel albums that began with The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Instead, Eminem has dropped a huge release of limited edition merchandise. His team have reissued a cassette of The Eminem Show LP, as well as t-shirts and autographed posters that carry handwritten annotations of its liner notes.

Mathers hyped us with an Instagram post explaining the inspiration behind the award-winning album:

The concept for The Eminem Show was inspired by The Truman Show because my life felt like it was becoming a circus at that time and I felt like I was always being watched.

Basically Jim Carrey wrote my album.

Maybe Mathers will be sending Carrey one of his limited edition bundles to say thanks.

Prices start at $30, for a cassette and poster and go up to $250, for the full package which includes a cassette, t-shirt and autographed poster, if it’s payday where you are.

The offer ends on Saturday, because there’s a time limit on greatness, apparently. Happy nostalgia trip!
